Student volunteers distribute water to outdoor workers
In the spirit of sharing and caring for community members, 15 AUS student volunteers participated in the Water Distribution Campaign held by the Office of Student Affairs' (OSA) Community Services division in collaboration with Emirates Red Crescent on August 31. The students distributed water to outdoor workers on the AUS campus and around University City to promote the benefits of drinking water to keep the body hydrated.
The simple act of handing out drinking water to workers at their job site provided not only a physical boost for the workers, but also a boost to their morale knowing they were cared for and that their hard work is not taken for granted.
"Going out in the heat and distributing water to the workers in University City not only felt good but also helped me realize their hard work and value them more. The smile and happiness on their faces when we met them and gave them water made the entire event worthwhile," said Zulfiqar Shahpurwala, an economics student.
"Through this campaign, our students understand the importance of water for their daily existence and realize the need to share what is considered a basic need for survival. Distributing water is a gesture of our respect and gratitude to community members who work tirelessly under challenging situations. I am thankful to our students for setting an example to their peers by supporting this simple but very meaningful campaign," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
